God Offered Friendship to His Enemies

An important reminder from Nancy Guthrie’s advent devotional, Let Every Heart Prepare Him Room.

“Left on our own, we are sinners who naturally fight against God. That makes him our enemy. But God has not left us on our own. Even though we have declared war on him deep in our hearts, he has declared peace with us. This friendship is made possible not because Jesus was born, but because Jesus would die. Paul wrote, ‘Since our friendship with God was restored by the death of his Son while we were still his enemies, we will certainly be saved through the life of the Son’ (Romans 5:10).”
